Yeovil roadworks warning
Beware road chaos ahead. The A3088 linking Yeovil to the A303 at Cartgate roundabout is due to have major drainage work next week. According to Somerset Country Council the road will be closed 24 hours a day between Monday 15 February and Friday 26 February. According to the Council the works team must replace a section of the A3088 Cartgate Link Road’s drains. The current drains frequently cause flooding on or alongside the carriageway. The scheme will also involve installing a filter drain under the surface of the carriageway to improve the system.
Someone clearly hadn’t explained the dates to John Woodman. SCC’s Cabinet Member for Highways noted “Please ensure you plan ahead before the work starts next month.” February is this month, John!
The other problem we had with this warning, was not knowing exactly where on the A3-88 the roadworks would be. SCC tell us it will be “1km from the Bunford Lane/Western Relief junction.” They also provided the screenshot below:
